out of them. I knew nothing else more than just a passing fancy,

and wanted to do nothing else. the “make do and mend” ethos
There were two main influences
Of course being able to pass is being taken up by families all
in my creative life, my mum and
my paternal grandmother. I can
attribute my pursuit of an art
career to my mother, a fabulous
artist in her own right, I remember
her spending time helping me
draw and colour things very
precisely from a very young age.
My earliest crafting memory was
with my grandmother who made
most things for her home herself,
coming from the “make do and
mend” era of the Second World
War. She was an avid knitter too
and knitted nearly all my jumpers
until I was a teenager and I
remember her teaching me with a
small pair of bright green knitting
needles (which I still have). I
grew up both making things for
my dolls and making cards and
presents for my family so it’s no
wonder I continued these skills
